CCMC 234

Good morning, Friends! It's time once again for a fabulous challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week's challenge is a color challenge. Check it out!

Pink Pirouette, Midnight Muse, Whisper White. Great colors but none that I had put together. But take a look at how great they go together!

Love the way this one came together! A super easy card, too! I took a strip of Whisper White and flagged the bottom. Then I ran it through the Big Shot with the Adorning Accents hearts folder and embossed the bottom part of the banner. Then I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Essentials in Midnight Muse and tied a piece of Pink Pirouette 3/8" taffeta ribbon around it before popping it up onto a card base of Midnight Muse. Then I stamped the heart image from Hearts a Flutter in Midnight Muse onto Pink Pirouette card stock and cut it out with the Hearts a Flutter framelits dies. This is popped up onto the white panel. A small heart was punched from Whisper White card stock with the small heart punch. This is popped up onto the pink heart with a rhinestone.

Check out the Create with Connie and Mary website to see what the rest of the design team did with these fabulous colors! I hope you will be inspired to play along with us this week! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Hi Deb! Your card is so pretty and sweet! I too had never used these colours together before, but I have to say I'll be using them again. Love the added embossing under your sentiment!

  2. Never would have thought you could use these colors for Valentine's Day! This would be a great masculine card to celebrate the special day!

  3. Love the little heart layered over the big heart with just the right amount of bling!

  4. Love this clean and simple card! The color combo is so fresh! All your elements are perfectly placed. I agree with Melissa...great man Valentine.

  5. Great card, Deb. The dry embossing on the flag banner is a perfect touch.

  6. Oh, love how you embossed just a portion of the banner...GREAT idea!!! Your card just screams CLASSY!
